The food, the hospitality and the ambience, everything was beyond great. I'd the best experience in Hotel de Petit. They staff helped us out in every possible way. The hotel has a calming dravidian vibe to it. Almost every place is within walking distance from the hotel.

I would never forget this vacation ever. Not just because of place, but because of people! Their hospitality is top notch. Zakir, Binu, Parvati, Bala everyone treated us as a family, a friend and took care of us like one. Servicing 100000/10 Food 100000/10 Place 10000/10 I promised myself whenever I'll ever go to Pondicherry again I'll be staying with them only. I don't want to go anywhere else not even for the sake of trying new place or people. Because this place and people have my heart and soul.

What I liked: -Location. Easy walk from the beach. Plenty of dining options all around -Heritage style -Rooms. Old world charm. Very clean -Private parking, unlike many other hotels in the same price bracket, where you have to hunt for parking on the roads in the vicinity. -Very attentive staff -Sanitizers available at strategic points in all public areas What could be improved on: -In-house restaurant no longer functional, except to provide breakfast -Staff not observing the face-mask rule strictly. Had to ask a couple of staff members to wear their masks Highlight of the stay: When we checked out, I inadvertently left my wallet in the safe deposit box in the room. We had driven ~75 km from Pondicherry when the hotel discovered this and called us. Rather than have us drive the entire distance back, Mr. Binu and Ms. Parvathi from the hotel went over and beyond the call of duty and sent two of their staff members in another vehicle to meet us at a halfway point and hand it over. I wish to place on record my sincere thanks to both of them. -
